It is just a great trail. I even met a saint on the way up who offered up a cup of drink, and it tasted great even though the cup wasn't silver as usual when one meets a saint on a dream ride.

The old saint had a glow about him that was very strange as he handed me the cup.

I could not have made it any easier, right? St. Elmo to Tincup. I guess you are up in respect to this parallel intrusion. The rock is on the left just before the climb after you leave St. Elmo and we were just taking in the local details as we do when we ride slow, as is usually the case. I love the area around St. Elmo and Tincup.

Yeah, you pretty much broke out the Crayons for us. Grub was just as right as I was though... I was pretty sure on the Tincup hint, not as sure about St. Elmo. I haven't ridden the area, so I was going off your hint only. I do want/need to ride it this year though, will see what I can do!


Ok folks... where is this?

That is a great guess and I could see why you'd say that... but no.

Bartlett Wash area?

Sounds like you have a new destination for that 690 in Tin Cup/St. Elmo, I'd imagine it will be a blink on some huge ride though.

I thought the hint was a riddle....boy did I read too much into that one.

Not Bartlett Wash... for a hint, Uli guess/location was closer...

I'd really like to spend a long weekend around Taylor Park this summer, take both the WR450 and the 690 and do some fun singletrack on the WR and some big loops on the 690. We will see if I can make that happen!
